Schoharie Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

With the sun at it's highest angle of the season right now many fish seek refuge in the grassy shoreline. This offers not only shade from the sun, but also a good variety of food as many insects fall into the stream from the weeds. This is a great time to use terrestrials such as grasshoppers and ants. My favorite for this situation is a #14 Travis Para-Ant in black. Cast your fly as close to the bank as possible and allow it to drift from the sunny areas into the shady areas. Be ready because the take can be explosive.

Seven-day forecast 

The heavy rains of last week has brought water levels back to very good fishing levels. . This week will be fairly warm with temperatures in the high seventies. There is a chance of late day thunderstorms for the first few days of the week. The week will end with slightly cooler weather. Fishing conditions continue to be excellent.
